Good steady Mexican food. Has the normal charm and traditional favorites. Nothing too picante and price is right.

I recently went back to El Paso the other day and it was just as good as always! I love the Tacos Mexicanos (have to get corn tortillas with carnitas AMAZING) Lots of other great dishes with above average service! The best part about it all are the prices, very reasonable especially compared all other Mexican restaurants. Better prices, better... More

I recently moved to Alexandria from El Paso and was hoping to have some authentic Mexican cuisine, instead I got food that was not the El Paso Mexican I was used to. The tacos were flavorless and hard while the beans tasted like they were made yesterday. The paintings were also very misleading, it made El Paso look like a... More

Great food! I was in Springfield for 2 nights on business travel and ended up at El Paso both nights. The Mexican Paella was awesome. Good chips and salsa, fast service, and reasonable prices. I will definitely be back.

We always go to El Paso when we are in the mood for Mexican! Ask for Joleesa! The burritos are large and scrumptious, the soup is fantastic and the pork is fabulous!

Great place - good authentic food in a fun environment. The chips and salsa are made fresh on site and the rest of the menu is all super tasty! It is my favorite and I always make a point to go when I am in the area. And when I live nearby....I am a regular!

Some interesting dishes, plus all the standard stuff. Good not great. Affordable, not cheap. Ice cold mexican beer on tap. Cozy setting, nice staff, sit in the front. Quick service. A locals favorite.

Great margaritas and tasty food at a moderate price. El Paso is a staple in Springfield not to be missed. Sit outside if you can.

I can't call it Mexican because I know what real Mexican food is. However, I can call it excellent Tex Mex. I could taste the pork in the enchiladas Nortenas I ordered. The Cadillac margarita I ordered was also excellent and flavorful. I very much enjoyed this restaurant. I may not have stopped here if it was not recommended. They... More
